Defensive Tackle – Kingsley Keke

Keke enters the 2018 season with a load of experience. Coming back for his senior season was a major win for the Aggies, who are returning basically everyone in their front seven. The defense will need to show vast improvement if they are to contend for the college football playoff, and it starts up front.

Most of the problems came at the back end of the defense in 2017, but that can be fixed with a dominant pass rush. Mike Elko should be able to make lives miserable for opposing quarterbacks. Which brings us to the next guy.

Defensive End – Landis Durham

Durham quietly tied for the SEC lead with 10.5 sacks in 2017. It was a breakout season for the converted linebacker who could see his production increase under Elko. Teams will no doubt be aware of Durham in 2017 and he may see some double teams. It will be on his teammates to win their matchups and open up the game for Durham.
